How do I increment a variable? var++ throws an error

I’d like to increment a counter variable, and usually you do that with something like var++, i++, etc.

According to the help page, https://docs.uipath.com/studio/v2016.2/docs/the-assign-activity, it should be possible, but I don’t see any syntax.

In every language I’ve used outside of COBOL, there is a ++ operator.

In UIPath community edition, the Assign activity throws a compiler error “expression expected”.

variable = variable + 1

Hi
the reason is a=a++ unary operator comes with C# and not with VB net
as uipath includes methods and functions from vb net, ++ operator wont work
rather we can mention like what @NotFranmax suggested
like
counter = counter + 1

That’s what I wound up doing.
